Hi Dr. Ek het n artikel gelees wat die volgende genoem het in die behandeling van IBS  1. Get rid of the unwanted visitors in your small bowel. Ask your doctor to prescribe rifaximin (Xifaxin) and take two 200 mg tablets three times a day for seven to 10 days. This is often the best way to deal with the chronic bacterial overgrowth that causes bloating and irritable bowel syndrome. You may also need an anti-fungal such as nystatin or fluconazole for two to four weeks.

2. Repopulate your digestive tract with good bacteria. I don’ t usually recommend brands, but when it comes to probiotics the quality varies so much that I suggest taking two specific brands. Take one packet of VSL3 or other high potency probiotic twice a day for one to two months. This probiotic has over 450 billion organisms per packet. I also recommend a probiotic called S. boulardii take two capsules twice a day for two months. This is a special probiotic that helps to further normalize gut function.

3. Try digestive enzymes with meals to help break down food while your gut heals. You also may benefit from nutrients that help heal the lining of the gut including fish oil, GLA (from evening primrose oil, zinc, vitamin A, glutamine and others.
Wat dink u hiervan en wat sal mens kan neem wat jy hier in SA kry en oor die toonbank vir die unwanted visitors in your small bowel en die anti-fungal en dan die probiotic en digestive enzymes? Dankie vir u hulp.

hello Karen

As 'n natuurlike practitioner benader ek die IBS met stap een met ander medikasie. Daar is nog 'n stap wat eerste kan oorveeg word, en dit is, remove Remove enige moontlike kos wat die spyssvertering kan irriteer. Gewoonlik speel wheat en dairy 'n rol.
Die Xifaxin help om E Coli in die gut dood te maak. Ek skryf 'n natuurlike medisyne vir dit voor.

Meeste van die Produkte is beskikbaar in gesondheids winkels.
Ek behandel ook IBS van 'n mental-emotional kant - die gut is baie gelink aan emosies.
